Narrator Peter Capaldi's Scottish accent is so strong that American listeners may have trouble understanding him at first, but those who stick with it are in for a supersonic treat. Prez Mellows has been removed from the care of his senile grandad and is living in a temporary foster home when a space-traveling alien--in the form of a dog named Sputnik--shows up at his door. Capaldi's exuberant performance gives Boyce's delightful writing even more cheerful buoyancy, humor, and heart as he captures jaunty Sputnik and his outlandish antics. Especially sympathetic as Prez, Capaldi modulates his voice from quiet wonder to panicked alarm amid the madcap physics-defying adventures. Heartwarming fun will entertain the whole family. S.C.
